For years, late-night talk show hosts like Trevor Noah, David Letterman, and Jimmy Kimmel have given Democrats a pass for their disastrous policies.
Instead of asking them real or at least relevant questions, these comedians would pal around with the politicians and ask them more about pop culture than policy.
But Bill Maher just destroyed Joe Biden when he dropped this devastating truth bomb.
A crisis of their own creation
Joe Biden and the Democrats love to blame everyone and everything else, but themselves, for the pain we’re all experiencing at the gas pump.
At the very beginning of Biden’s term as President, he terminated the Keystone XL pipeline.
His administration banned any new drilling on federal lands for oil and gas.
In fact, despite the current crisis America is currently experiencing, the Biden administration is still fighting to uphold the ban in the courts.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Biden bureaucrats in the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of the Interior have been messing with American oil companies’ permits, causing even more disruptions in domestic energy production.
And that is to say nothing of the runaway inflation, which was largely caused by decades of wasteful government spending.
But alas, Joe Biden first tried to place the blame on Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russia’s war in Ukraine.
Then, after people weren’t buying that narrative, and the data showed that to be a lie, Biden then shifted his ire to the oil companies.
In a ranty letter to oil company executives, Biden accused them of price gouging and threatened to use the full power of the federal government against them if they didn’t reduce prices.
And while that plan appears to have failed, Biden is pillaging America’s strategic oil reserves to bring down costs, which is also doing little to ease American’s pain at the pump.
So much so that now Biden is signaling to Congress that he may be open to pausing the federal gas tax, an idea that he had previously opposed.
Regardless of how much the President whines about being a victim of circumstance, he and his administration were very much in control of them and did everything to make America’s gas crisis worse.
As recently as May, Joe Biden said, “[When] it comes to gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels.”
It is worth noting that the elimination of fossil fuels was something Biden frequently talked about on the campaign trail as early as 2019.
Maher’s mauling of Joe Biden’s mismanagement
Perhaps that is the reason why no one is buying Biden’s lies about the gas crisis and Biden’s approval rating is sinking like the Titanic.
But it certainly is the reason why Bill Maher devoted an entire segment of his HBO Show Real Time with Bill Maher to blasting Biden for the creation of this crisis.
“Look, I wish we were all off fossil fuels forever. But the truth is that when people get off fossil fuels before they have a replacement, they wind up going back to even worse fossil fuels. Germany said, ‘We don’t want nuclear power anymore,’ which is the cleanest, and what did they have to go back to? Coal,” Maher said.
Maher then proceeded to rake Biden over the proverbial coals for his upcoming trip to Saudi Arabia, a country Biden once threatened to make a “pariah.”
He continued by saying, “And basically, the same thing happened here. We said, ‘Saudi Arabia, go f*** yourself, you killed a journalist,’ and now, Biden is going over there, hat in hand, begging them for oil.”
Now, while Maher is correct for blasting Biden’s Saudi Arabia begging trip, what he leaves out is the fact that such a trip would be completely unnecessary if the Biden administration would help boost domestic energy production instead of stifling it as they’re currently doing.
But what is truly fascinating about this entire segment is the fact that it happened at all.
Maher made his millions by making fun of conservatives and Christians.
And now he’s devoting segments of his show to trashing the sitting Democrat President.
This is either a sign of just how unpopular Joe Biden is with Democrats or how badly people are hurting in America.
Hopefully it is the former more than the latter, but unfortunately that is something only time will tell.
